The Music Geek Track of the Week: “Harps”

God do I have the softest soft spot for The Sea and Cake. Usually the Music Geek Track of the Week requires a lot of sifting and personal turmoil, because I can’t possibly let you guys know every single time I hear something cool that makes me wiggle (wiggling dominates most of my critical criteria for music reviews). This week was a no brainer though.

Yesterday, the Chicago super group released “Harps,” the first single off their upcoming album, Runner, due out September 19th. A nugget of ethereal dance pop, “Harps” is the kind of low key groove I imagine you might find in a modest nightlife scene of a Duplass Brothers film. From the introductory swell of glitchy synths to Sam Prekop’s satin smooth voice, and all the delicately effected guitars in between, this track does all the things a proper pop song should do. I dare you not dance/wiggle.

    After about 10 seconds I had Trainspotting running through my head. Sounds great!

  2. @Chris “Up On Crutches” is great! These guys are one of my favorites (obviously) and they’ve been around forever making great stuff. I am glad you dig it!
